Help! I really like sex. I mean I really like sex. I like to hear it, see it, smell it, participate, etc. I would have sex 24/7 if I could. But, only with consenting adults.
I've never had any thoughts of rape, pedophilia, and other forced acts. As a matter of fact, I abhor those things.

But, I still like sex. Is this normal?

Sure. You're supposed to like sex, that's how nature makes sure that we continue the species 🙂 Is your desire for sex interfering with the rest of your life? Causing trouble in relationships? Taking away from time you feel you should be doing something else (like working, or playing, or being with your family)? Do you have any other interests or joys outside of sex? Those flags would be the tip off that your enjoyment of sex is turning from a healthy activity into an addiction.

Why do you feel like you have a problem or addiction?

No it's not. There are sex-a-holic groups for people who find sex to be so "great" that it is distracting them from getting on with their lives.

Consider if you need help like this.

Is sex keeping you from managing your life in a "normal" way?

I think that I can keep my life manageable. I have so far. But, I find myself drawn more and more to having sex.

I don't let it interfere with work or my relationship. (My partner and I have an open relationship.)Although, I have had sex at work and while I was working.

But, what is a sex addiction? How do you tell if you have one?

You might want to just try a yahoo or google search "how do I know if I'm a sex addict" or "symptoms of sexual addiction". I'm serious, you can find a lot of good information that way.

I know there are groups for sex addiction, much like AA. My friend who goes to Al-Anon has told me that there were some pamphlets at one of her meetings for Sex-a-holics Anon. Perhaps you might start there and see if you fit into those categories.

Personally, if it is interfering with your work on a regular basis, then there might be some issues.

Wishing you all the best.

I stongly feel that sex is not the most IMPORTANT activity for me. And if you feel that you need that all the time you do have a PROBLEM. Life is full of other type enjoyments to me you have a complex and if sex is the main track...you do have a PROBLEM....no way I could function with a person like that sorry.

Personally it would annoy me too to think it's the only interest a person has.

How old are you? That's probably a big determining factor in your desire too. If you are worried you have a problem, maybe you should address it with a professional counselor.

I'm a big fan of sex also. I've been with the same guy for the last two years ,and he isn't all about sex like I am, so he kind of helps me keep it under control.

Of course it does, Pink. I may have misread sexistoogood's posts, but I think he is asking for some help in getting his constant desires more manageable. Responding with an "Ugh!" probably is just making him feel worse. How would you feel if you posted about a problem you had and I posted back to you making you feel like your feelings were aberrant and icky? Let's try to help, OK?

Pink Lady, your posts on this thread have been very negative, and I'm not sure why. Is this discussion triggering something for you that is getting your feathers ruffled? Do you want to talk about it? What's wrong?

I'm serious, I'm really asking, not trying to attack or make you feel bad, I'd really like to help if I can.

Addictions.

If you can substitute alcohol, tobacco, drugs, gambling, compulsive behaviours for the word sex....and get the same meaning....it's an addiction.

"...Another characteristic that makes addictive habits different from non-addictive habits is their ability to produce a positive feeling while at the same time getting rid of a negative one. A non-addictive habit only gets rid of a negative feeling.

The positive feeling that every addiction produces is the feeling of being in control. The negative feeling that it gets rid of is the feeling of being controlled."

sexistoogood: Hello, I wonder if ...maybe you and your partner tried to work on making each other happy , if you would need an open relationship? Then the both of you can grow and you may feel more secure and the need for so much sex may turn into a need for ONLY each other. Who knows? You may start thinking about enjoying things together...like.. taking up a hobby together of some kind. God has given us a BIG WONDERFUL world to enjoy.. there's lots of fun out there! GOD BLESS !
